VLC on Android 1.7.0 is a minor update:
- This release is removing many permissions from the application, and is the first step for Android 6.0 permissions.
- There is a new subtitle engine, for complex text and Unicode support..
- We've changed the notification, the lockscreen and the Bluetooth control to be more standard. We've worked to simplify the code and use more standard libraries and widgets.
- The previous major version, 1.6.0 added many things, but mostly accelerated the video playback speed for 4K support.
